What about a mandarin? I just got back from the lfs

I wouldn't suggest a mandarin at this time. Chromis are really active middle of the tank swimmers. I have blue- green because I couldn't find any blue at the time, but I think the blue reef ones are prettier IMO
In my 30g, I have:
1 yellowheaded jawfish
1 half black angel
1 occ clown
1 chalk bass
1 honey-red chromis
And my water parameters are fine and the fish get along fine without any aggression. I've never had hair algae or cyano
. I do have an AC
70 and an ac30 on there, though. And about 35-40# LR
. So, lots of filtration. And I'm good about doing PWCs. So, if you have really good filtration and keep up on regular PWCs, then yes, you can do about 5-6 small fish.
